Mike Cameron To Retire

Outfielder Mike Cameron has notified the Nationals that he will retire, according to the team's official Twitter account.  Cameron also drew interest from the Indians this winter before signing a minor league deal with Washington in December.

The 39-year-old was designated for assignment by the Red Sox in June before being dealt to the Marlins.  In total, Cameron hit just .203/.285/.359 in 269 combined plate appearances and saw his season come to an end when he was released by the Marlins for conduct detrimental to the team.

In 17 big league seasons, Cameron hit .249/.338/.444 with 278 home runs for eight different clubs.  According to Baseball Reference, the centerfielder earned more than $76MM over the course of his career.
